BREAKOUT: Future of Federal Advocacy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How the League does its federal advocacy is changing, and this session will give advocates and members a chance to hear about what's coming next. The session will start with a discussion on what is happening in Congress and the opportunities and threats to bicycling and walking in the current political climate. Once we've discussed the context, we'll then discuss strategies for how the League and the bicycling community can be prepared.
